Centering The Sidebar Buttons

Here's the scoop on easy HTML tips, SEO (search engine optimization), Blogger help and all news on technical features and softwares!
Today's topic: centering the sidebar buttons

This one's gonna be easy-peasy! First thing, you have to be logged in to your blog's dashboard as always and go under the Design(or Layout for older versions) box and hit the Page elements box. Then go to the HTML gadget on the sidebar that holds all your favorite sites' buttons(or if you don't have just one that hold them all go to each of them individually, and wherever the beginning of a button's HTML code starts - the buttons's code always start with this tag

Add this centering code at the beginning of the button's code:

and then this centering code at the end of the button's code:

Then hit save and that's it! Do this for each button individually or for your blogroll in case you have one and there you will have all the buttons centered. On the other hand if you want the process to go reverse, meaning you don't want them centered, then delete the center codes from the beginning and the end of the button's HTML code and you will get that result! Told ya it's gonna be an easy one. Oh and stay tuned cause there's gonna be more button tweaking, best 5 SEO tips, post title tags and many more! Just make sure you check in and don't miss any of them!

Already following. I love your little HTML tips. Im such a goober when it comes to this stuff. HA!
Stopping by to let you know I have moved to a new domain. You can see me at www.nothingbutfabulousity.com
I have numerous giveaways, polls, and contests. Here is the sad part, with my move it appears I have lost all my comments. So if you have entered into anything I actually need you to zoom back and re-comment. If you havent entered into any of them, what are you waiting for? Get your butt over there!! HA!
Site is under construction so please be patient.
Stay Fabulous

Jane and Lou said...

umm... assistance required - I really want mine centred on my blog http://homemadeforkids.blogspot.com/ and successfully changed the code on one, but can't centre the button for my fave blog (Heartfelt), even though I've changed the HTML like you said, it still aligns on the left - I have all the buttons installed via "add a gadget" "insert HTML". Any advice appreciated...
